8/04/2013 Welcome from the Associate Dean continued.. world. Rendez-vous in Canada last October saw a large contingent of Flinders NT participants; this year we are co-hosts of the Leaders in Indigenous Medical Education (LIME) Conference in Darwin and we are regularly supporting other conferences in the NT with presentations and workshops. Please let us know where Flinders NT takes you so that we can capture your stories in Flinders NT Matters. I hope you enjoy your read! Regards, Sarah Professor Sarah Strasser, Associate Dean, Flinders NT March 2013 flinders.edu.au/nt-medical-program Continued from page 1. The Katherine site (including Katherine Remote Clinical School and CRH) has blossomed under the leadership of Associate Professor Pascale Dettwiller. Katherine Remote Clinical School have significantly increased their level of community engagement, with a particular focus on research and CPD offerings. This year will see the expansion of OKeefe House and the development of community multi-purpose buildings. Nhulunbuy Remote Clinical School is at the final stages of contracts for building at the Gove District Hospital and a new Teaching and Learning Centre which will include a Simulation Learning Environment. In the meantime, Nhulunbuy office has relocated to Gove District Hospital. The negotiations regarding the Nhulunbuy developments have involved false-starts, re-negotiation and collaboration between a number of parties and I would like to thank our students and staff for their patience and perseverance. I am sure we will benefit from the outcomes. The other components of Flinders NT are the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health and the Indigenous Transition Pathways to Medicine Unit. Both groups have seen a lot of change since they were launched, and are now working together in the areas of promotion and recruitment; support for Indigenous students; developing careers pathways; supporting programs; research and establishment of Indigenous reference groups. As these programs develop, opportunities to spread the word and help others implement similar initiatives is happening across the Photos clockwise from top left: 1. Remote Health Experience 2013 2.
